December is, as always, a time to reflect. ‘Tis the season (as they say) to contemplate everything that has transpired and look forward to all that is to come. In that spirit, we wanted to take a minute to think about all the big changes ahead of and behind us at Strobel Dentistry.
2013 was a big year! Our 81st year in business, in fact, and there were plenty of momentous events to mark the occasion. April saw the wedding of our hygiene assistant Melissa and June brought news of our hygienist Nicole’s engagement. In September Dr. Dan and his wife Missy welcomed their newest child Tommy to the world.
Not all the news was quite so simply joyous; November marked the end of a tremendous 38 year career for Dr. Greg, an exciting but bittersweet transition for us all. That same month, however, we were fortunate to be able to introduce Dr. Isabella as our newest staff member, the practice’s first associate in over 20 years and a fantastic addition to our team.
This train isn't stopping, and we couldn't be more excited for what comes next for the office in 2014. We’ll be expanding the office in the spring to accommodate two additional operatories. More space means updated technology with which to serve our patients – look out for a CAD-CAM to make an appearance after our renovation, allowing us to make some crowns on-site in as little as a day! We’ll also be taking a look at our practice management software and likely making the move to the cloud – we’re committed to keeping up with the latest advancements to make patient visits as pleasant and efficient as possible.
We’re not finished with big life events either. Our hygienist Ali can’t wait to welcome her second child in February and our hygienist Aer celebrates her wedding next Memorial Day. With Nicole sealing the deal next November, we’re pumped for celebrations all year long!
All of us consider ourselves so fortunate to have completed our 81st year in practice and still be going strong. We’re proud of our service to the community and so grateful for the opportunity to work with our wonderful patients each day. We hope that you find as much joy and contentment in your reflection as we have in ours. Wishing all of you the happiest of holidays and an exciting new year!
